Former GOP Presidential Candidate
Republican presidential candidate, Texas Governor Rick Perry, has defended US Marines who were caught on video urinating on dead Taliban fighters.

Mr Perry told CNN on the weekend that the urination incident was a case of "kids being kids."

He told the interviewer: "Obviously 18, 19-year-old kids make stupid mistakes all too often and that's what's occurred here. These kids made a mistake, there's not any doubt about it. They shouldn't have done it, it's bad, but to call it a criminal act, I think is over the top."
